When I was a kid, my brother would take me to see Dodger games.
We would always buy the cheapest seats possible, and then sneak down to the more expensive seats later in the game.
We’d wait until later in the game when many people would start leaving, so there would be some open seats.
As a kid, I always loved to be close enough to my favorite players, so they looked like real people I could see up close, rather than pretend people I had to stare at through a pair of binoculars.
Now, getting down to the expensive seats wasn’t easy. They always had ushers that would check people’s tickets, even later in the game.
So my brother worked out an effective strategy. Me, being a kid, would just walk in like I knew I was doing. Most of the time, this worked fine.
My brother instructed me that if anybody asked for my ticket, I would just ignore them, and keep walking.
If you’ve ever gone anywhere where you “don’t belong,” then you know this is a pretty good strategy.
Even in alien invasion movies, when a large percentage of the population has had their brains taken over, the heroes can slip in and out just by “pretending” they know what they’re doing.
If you act nervous, somebody will think you’re up to no good, even if you’re just nervous.
If you act like you know what you’re doing, people won’t give you a second look. Even if you are up to no good.
One secret about human behavior that most people don’t get is that people will respond to you based on how you respond to you.
You know what I’m talking about, right?
If you think you don’t belong, people will take this as a cue, and then act as if you don’t belong.
But if you believe and act like you DO belong (even if you don’t) people will treat you as such.
Another secret you’re well aware of is that humans are much less logical than most people think we are.
A large part of our behavior is based on the social signals from those around us. Both how we perceive others, and how we perceive ourselves.
However, for the vast majority, they never really understand what these triggers and cues are, so they tend to bounce around, unsure of themselves, and always kind of “hoping” for the best.
But once you fully understand ALL the triggers that guide human behavior, you’ll be playing chess while everybody else is playing checkers.
Giving you the inside track.
